Combines a Segway-like personal transportation device integrated into a roll along suitcas
Heres an idea Ive gone so far as to try to find a Chinese company to manufacture - no luck yet. It looks like standard roll along suitcase. However, from the back of this suitcase folds down a small standing platform at the rear of which is mounted a trailing caster wheel. The front two wheels
at the bottom of the suitcase are individually powered and a thumb toggle switch in the center of the top of the telescoping handle controls the differential steering. With a range of 12 miles at just over a walking pace - why tow your luggage when it can carry you? Running late and just missed your ride to the train station? No sweat literally, Scooter Luggage can save the day! Other than airport security questioning the battery, motor, and wires how could this lose?
Similar to this?
